“South of the Border” is the second track from Ed Sheeran’s 2019 album “No.6 Collaborations Project”. The song features vocals from Camila Cabello and rapper Cardi B.

‘No.6 Collaborations Project’ follows Ed’s collaborative EP series, which ceased at No.5 in 2011. The 2019 album features a massive list of collaborations from Eminem, 50 Cent, Bruno Mars, Skrillex , Khalid, Travis Scott, Stormzy, Justin Bieber, Meek Mill and more. In an interview with Charmalagne Tha God, Ed Sheeran called this album a ‘compilation of artists he is a fan of.’

“South of the Border” sings about this amazing girl with “brown eyes” and “caramel thighs” that Ed meets in a bar. They hit it off and he’s ready to cross the border to be with her. Theoretically, Ed is talking about a Mexican girl, because Mexico is south of the United States. Coincidentally, collaborator Camila Cabello is originally from Cuba, also further south of the United States.

The entire song has a sultry undertone, where Ed, Camila, and Cardi B brag about what they find attractive about each other. Ed Sheeran and Camila Cabello are the two main roles in the story. Ed Sheeran describes her as a girl with “brown eyes”, “caramel thighs”, “long hair” and above all “without wedding ring”. Camila describes the guy as “green eyes”. However, Ed’s eyes are blue in real life.

Cardi B’s third verse on “South of the Border” drops some interesting perspectives on love. She’s about risking what you have for a bigger gain and that’s the way of life. She may be talking about her career development as a stripper to one of rap’s most dominant artists today. However, this lesson also applies to love. Cardi B also mocks Ed Sheeran for saying he might have “jungle fever”. This phrase is slang for a white person with a sexual appetite for black or exotic women. Finally, she also praises herself for being the best version of herself – she’s a mother of a baby, has a huge musical career going on, has a love life with Offset, and she never gives up on anything at all. that. #TO KILL
